President Donald Trump arrived in Orange, Texas on Saturday in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura.
Before arriving in Orange, Texas, Trump visited Lake Charles, Louisiana to survey the damage caused by the Category 4 hurricane that made landfall near Cameron, Lousiana with maximum sustained winds of 150 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Trump next visited Orange, Texas, meeting with first responders and local officials who are beginning to recover from the Category 4 storm, which made landfall Thursday.
Trump took Marine One to Orange. See the photos and videos from his visits.
The storm left tens of thousands without power and has been blamed for at least 14 deaths according to the Associated Press.
Trump signed a disaster declaration for Louisiana on Friday.
“Now it turned out we got a little bit lucky. It was very big. It was very powerful but it passed quickly,” Trump said Thursday during a visit to the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
